That's a good point Walt and yes, you would have expected the 7 times winner of the Tour de France to be slightly higher in the pecking order than the Wings percussionist!. The Cyclepedia entries that we have uploaded are to give all our members an idea of the scope and breadth of the entries we would love them to submit.

Rider biogs, cycling parlance, famous climbs and races, component and bike manufacturers - you name it, they have a place in the list. As do the more obscure and perhaps lesser known facts - many people into their cycling - or rather their history of British cycling - would know that Linda McCartney had her own cycling team, but many would not. Hopefully this entry will encourage members to submit similarly irreverent suggestions!

As for Lance Armstrong, of course he is worth of a place in the Cyclepedia and his (current) no show is an invitation for our members to contribute one, so long as it is balanced and not a knocking piece on his his alleged drug use. He was, and remains, a phenomenal athlete. Do you want to take a stab at it Walt?!

I think there was the hope that such a glaring omission might spur the man himself to sign-up to Wheelsuckers and write his own entry. There is still time Lance.

Also see my comments on the Paul Kimmage cyclepedia entry regarding his on-camera spat with Mr Armstrong - nothing but praise!

Is it because Linda makes better vegetarian cottage pies than Lance? I'd like a Linda McCartney team jersey, I wonder if they are available anywhere.

Has anyone noticed that they were in orange and black, like the very un-vegetarian team sponsered by Molteni processed meats!
